Thinking of planning an overnight, or 3 day trip to do some sightseeing in the Hartford area. Haven't
done any research yet, or even looked at a map.
Are any of the eating destinations mentioned above - Stamford, Riverdale, Washington Heights, New Rochelle -
a close enough drive to make sense for us?
Late night kosher and you're thinking Riverdale?
Golan Heights falafel in Washington Heights (seconds from Route 95) is open until about 2am. The falafel is great - and you may have seen the interior on a Maccabests video. The famished youth of the Jewish people drive in from New Jersey and the Five Towns after midnight, I would have thought that it would be the logical solution for midnight munchies in Greenwich.
My husband and I wound up having Cinnabon for a snack. They were gooey and good, and the idea of having a kosher Cinnabon was really priceless.
Then for dinner met a friend at Kosh. I had a hamburger, which was delicious; my husband had a salad the name of which he does not remember (maybe chef's salad?), but he enjoyed it. There was cornbread and honey before the meal; the service was great. We got there about an hour before they close and stayed for about two hours. They were amazingly accomodating, even after their scheduled closing time.
